Panaji Jan 21 (Agencies): After weeks of negotiations between Victoria Premier League club Oakleigh Canons and Churchill Brothers, striker Jerry Karpeh signed a six month contract with the Goan giants.
    
The contract was signed yesterday, when the transfer market opened up in India, after a final  compensation package was agreed, club sources said.
    
The 26-year-old will make his debut for Churchill on January 22 against Pune FC during the on going I-League, they said.
    
Karpeh, who played for Oakleigh Canons in the Victoria Premier league, had trails previously with S-League side Home United and Thailand's Chonburi FC.
    
However, the transfer high fee pegged to the Liberia-born Australian prevented his move to one of the South East Asian Clubs.
    
When an opportunity came along in late 2010, Jerry's representative R Sasikumar, former  Singapore international, based out of Singapore was quick to link up with his former national team coach Vincent Subramaniam, who is the head coach of Churchill Brothers, the sources said.
